    My sincere sympathy to the Rooney family. Ann was a classmate of mine, Class of 1963, Glenwood High School. Only in the past two years, we connected as Facebook friends. She always answered my inquiries and even sent an embroidered snow flake that she made on her machine. I will always remember her positive attitude. Jack Achter

    My deepest sympathy! I met Ann in a weight watchers meeting. She was the sweetest person and so upbeat. I will miss her postings on Facebook. My prayers to all of her family.
